Welcome to "the club" then. You can now join us. :D I think the FCG is the must have prop.

Made a mess, did we? :p I never pick up my messes. It gets way out of control.

Where can I find a motor at for an FCCG??

How do you determine the speed you want it tot run at? and how do you change the speed?

Thanks,
Hex

Well, the best motor for an FCG is a Dayton Gearmotor that runs at 6 RPM (model 2Z806).

One way to change the speed of a Dayton Gearmotor (down from the max RPM) is to use a light dimmer. Turn the dimmer up to increase speed, down to decrease.

Sorry about the brief post above. My head's swimming from all the activity here lately. But that's a good thing. :D

Yeah, I should post a link to a how-to shouldn't I?

The best FCG how-to is on the Phantasmechanics site. They tell you what motor to use and where to get it.

As for slowing it down, maybe one of the other members has a link to a how-to showing how you hook up a light dimmer to the motor.

You're on you're way! Looks great. Where'd you get the head? It looks a little more expressive than mine. I like it.

Your ghost also looks more three dimensional than mine. I'd like to fix that next year and make mine have a little more depth.
